The Hand of the Archeologist

The first research expedition I was part of as Artist at Sea with Ocean Exploration Trust, sought to map ancient underwater shorelines in order to determine whether humans came to the American continent via a western coastal passage. When I asked Loren Davis, the lead scientist on this trip, about what kind of features he was looking for, he immediately started drawing on his notepad, and I realized here was someone who thought with their hands. It gave me the idea to conduct a drawing interview with him about his research. 

Does the Ocean have Memories?
